Scott Joplin nasceu em Texarkana, nos Estados Unidos. Filho de um ex-escravo, soube tirar proveito de algumas aulas com um músico alemão que morava na cidade e se tornou um pianista habilidoso. Ganhava a vida se apresentando em clubes e “casas de tolerância” ou viajando para tocar com bandas e acompanhar cantores. Em 1899, publicou Maple Leaf Rag, sua primeira peça para piano no estilo ragtime, que combina o ritmo regular das marchas e danças de tradição europeia com as síncopes das tradições musicais afro-americanas (e possivelmente também latino-americanas). A partitura vendeu meio milhão de cópias, garantindo a Scott Joplin a reputação de “Rei do Ragtime”. Desejoso de ter êxito em gêneros mais ambiciosos, escreveu duas óperas: A Guest of Honor [Um Convidado de Honra], que fez uma pequen...

The destruction of Hurricane Harvey was felt throughout Houston, including the Downtown Theater District, home to the city’s major performing arts center The Wortham Center. The center is home to Houston Grand Opera. When faced with the devastation that forced the Wortham to be closed for repairs well into next year, HGO got creative and set out to create a new performance space inside the George R. Brown Convention Center. Starting with a blank canvas (Hall A3) the size of two football fields, they built a full size 1,700 seat theater named Resilience Theater. Artistic & Music Director Patrick Summers and Managing Director Perryn Leech gave Houston Public Media a sneak peak of HGO’s home for the 2017/2018 season.
